I am new to Linux Dedicated server hosting and plesk panel 11 , i am looking for inbuilt firewall module . Is it comes with free in plesk 11 or i need to pay or plesk 11 doesn't support firewall?. I looked at the demo http://www.parallels.com/products/plesk/demos/, but i couldn't find any information about firewall in plesk 11.

For Windows it is there: Power User Mode demo -> Server tab -> Tools & Settings -> Tools & Resources -> IP Addresses -> Firewall (button). But it does not work on demo site (for obvious reasons). It uses Windows own firewall, no idea what it will use on Linux hosts. –  LazyOne Sep 30 '12 at 13:17
    
@LazyOne you are right i have seen windows demo, firewall option is there , but for linux its not available, Can any plesk 11 linux user can confirm firewall option? –  Sampath Sep 30 '12 at 13:52

Indeed, Plesk 11 has free built-in firewall module. You just may not have it installed - if so, go "Tools & Settings > Updates & Upgrades" menu and install missing components.
